W is for Women Who Have The Blues (#422)

The Blues Room, Episode # 422

In this episode I'm educated by Ruth Wyand (guitarist, songwriter and vocalist) and Jean Antolini (film maker) about the fore-mothers of the blues. Bet you thought it was men who first played the blues, huh! Well take a listen to this episode and just might be pleasantly surprised. You can find Ruth and Jean presenting their show, 'Mamas Got The Blues' in a town near you.
